Full­back Ge­orge leaves team

Orlando Sentinel - - SPORTS THURSDAY - By David Furones

Realus Ge­orge was the na­tion’s topranked full­back when he joined the Mi­ami Hur­ri­canes’ 2018 re­cruit­ing class while Mark Richt was still coach at UM.

Ge­orge never quite fit with the re­vamped of­fen­sive coach­ing staff Manny Diaz brought in when he took over for the re­tired Richt af­ter last sea­son. Ge­orge has now left Mi­ami to en­ter his name into the NCAA’s trans­fer por­tal, a UM spokesper­son con­firmed to the South Florida Sun Sentinel on Wed­nes­day.

Ge­orge’s de­ci­sion was first re­ported by 247 Sports.

Ge­orge ap­peared in all 12 of the Hur­ri­canes’ reg­u­lar-sea­son games but was lim­ited to spe­cial teams du­ties. He only saw ac­tion of­fen­sively in Mi­ami’s opener, a loss to Florida.

Ge­orge was passed up for rare full­back reps in of­fen­sive co­or­di­na­tor Dan Enos’ of­fense by walk-on Michael Par­rott this sea­son.
